                  Our house is located 1.3 miles from Inverness and the property is minutes away from Point Reyes National Seashore. Within the park there are many beautiful hiking trails, great wildlife sitings including whale watching, fabulous beaches, and a bay for swimming, kayaking, and sailing. The visitors center is informative and there is a Miwok Indian village just outside the center. Our children loved to play among the dwellings there when they were youngsters. The wild flowers in the spring are wonderful!!! If you don't want to drive you can simply walk to a couple of local beachs on Tomales Bay: Chicken Ranch and Shell Beach. Both are great for a picnic, a stroll, a swim or kayaking. After the exercise you will be hungry and there are two local cheese makers in the area; The Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station and Nicasio Cheese Factory (organic). There is a great farmers market on Saturday mornings in Point Reyes Station in summer and the Bovine Bakery there has the best bear claws ever!!! For pizza there is no better place than Cafe Reyes in Pt. Reyes and for brunch the classic Pine Cone diner harkens back to a time past full of cheeseburgers and thick milkshakes.
